GÂRDEN helps artists and cultural organisations to create and manage audiovisual content. We are a non-profit organisation with a mission to empower emerging artists.

Music Was Our First Love. Music moves, connects, emancipates and liberates. But we love to work in other disciplines as well, because we are art oriented. In our productions the artistic vision of the artists is leading. We create an atmosphere in which artists can reach that next level and are proud of being different with our purpose built audiovisual studio where we can catch a wealth of content from live performances with multitrack audio and multicam video recording.

GÂRDEN offers new artistic challenges and a stage to showcase live music worldwide with immersive, intimate and interactive livestreams. We merge creativity and affordability with equipment that meets the demands for professional audiovisual productions.

With GAEP we support artists that our members believe should be heard and seen by a wider audience. We do so by giving these artists discounts on our products and services and by inviting them for our curated projects. To scout and select these artists we use an automated, community based, curation system. Artists can pitch to be eligible for GAEP.
